Jer Clarke

I am a human web developer from Montreal and the the technical lead for Global Voices. I am responsible for developing and maintaining our various sites, which mostly run on WordPress.

I've been building websites since 2003 and have spoken about web development and WordPress at events like WordCamp (San Francisco, NYC, Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa) and ConFoo (Montreal).

My rarely updated blog is at jerclarke.org, my photos are on Flickr and my cats are very very soft.
